After a long drive from Etosha out into the middle of no-where the lodge was a welcome sight. We had a warm welcome and settled in the bar for a drink, but there was no escape from the heat even though we were not there in the very hot weather - they could really use some fans. Most of the staff we met were pleasant, but the room was most disappointing. Very much like a motel room; basic, not comfortable and very warm so there was no-where to hang out before dinner or when not out and about. The pool was green and not inviting at all. Food was buffet-style and very average. The drive out to see the desert elephants was truly the highlight of the stay along with a champagne toast at sunset and of course the nearby petroglyphs. Overall it was an expensive stay (you're really stuck out there with no-where else to eat) with not so much to see and do.
